All the kids are sick. Mac is on his 5th antibiotic in the last month. Bad ears and nose. Sissy has a sore throat and coughs. My poor JunieDog Millionaire, I took him this morning and he has an ear infection and pneumonia. I'm so sad because he needs antibiotics but with his strange tummy it's scary. I hate the thought of cdiff. again. He got his first dose at around 12:30 so I'm thinking the poops should be here by dinner. darnit. Please pray that they all heal quickly.

Macky's still happy.

He got his 1st tooth a couple weeks ago and his second one is almost here.
3 sickes.

Amelia Stopped Talking

Amelia decided that it would be more fun to write what she wants to ask or say rather than talk.
Pretty fun game.
The plan for the day!

1. Eat
2. Have fun
3. Go to the store
4. Come back

(5. Junie and Mac-pink eye) she forgot that one



That's a cupcake, obviously!

This is an ice cream cone.
I think it's going to be a long day.

Picky Junie

All of the sudden Junie has very strong opinions about what his hair should look like.
If we do anything other than this right after a bath he has a fit. We even let him look in the mirror and he loves the way it looks. Poor guy looks like a strange-0 but I don't have the heart to tell him.

President's Day

The kids and I took advantage of the free admission and had a really great day at the Shedd Aquaruim. So did about 1,000,000 other people but it was still really fun.
We took the train, a bus and then we walked the rest. Here they are outside the train station waiting for the bus.
Walking... walking... walking... it was a beautiful day.
There's Chicago. See that black building on the far right, I think that's Oprah's building. Right, Robyn?
Macker having fun! See Sissy and June?
Anyone see the Iguana, if you can't it's okay, Junie couldn't either...
Sissy and fish.
Scary shark.
Really scary.
My sweethearts.
My sweethearts on a fake turtle.
Time to find the bus stop.
That's the aquarium in the background and Lake Michigan.

Iowa Weekend

The boys and I went to Iowa this past weekend to see my family. Amelia and Scott stayed home in Chicago to have a "date" weekend. Trust me, they had the best time. American Girl Store, Valentine's party at school and Joseph and the Amazing Dream Coat play....

My dad drives a bus for a retirement community. Scotty loved it!

Macky got to take a long bath all by himself.

The reason for my trip was to see my dad be inducted into the Washington Hall of Fame. (My old high school) Junie loved cousin Hank.

There's Papa Gary waving!

Aunt Karoline and little Lucia Louise.

Sisters and I +Haddie.
My Juniedog and I.
Who's this naughty boy writing on the table cloth?

Oh, it's my Junie and we all know he's been thought a lot! No need to get upset with him.

The whole group.

I got Junie new wrestling men at a second hand store and he loves them.

They attached a cat.

He has names for all of them. This is Daddy. Duh, you already knew that, right?

My dad got pretty into it too.

We had a great weekend. Thanks guys!

And on a totally different note, we bought this house. We signed the papers Friday and we're really thankful to have found a nice house for our family. It even has a basement and it's about a 3 minute drive to church. Thank you God!
